Face The Music reveals 2016 details

Put everything you thought you knew about Face the Music aside. This isn’t your regular rodeo. Like the weather of its hometown, Face the Music this year will defy all predictions and expectations, evolving just as quickly as the industry it caters to. Keeping the best parts – like the panels of industry experts featuring revolutionary artists, media top-guns, savvy entrepreneurs, writers, broadcasters, and philosophisers from all over the world – this year the summit sees new programmers in Ashley Sambrooks and Zac Abroms ready to put every dazzling corner of the industry on show.

The annual music summit is also moving dates and moving venues. Convening over November 17 and 18, Face the Music 2016 will be located within the soon-to-be-announced Melbourne Music Week Hub location situated in the city. Featuring more innovation, more business opportunities, and a greater international focus – ‘cos there’s never been a better time to show the rest of the world what we’ve got – this is going to be the most exciting Face the Music on record.

There’s another banner announcement: this year will be the inaugural year of live music as part of Face the Music. Featuring some of the most beloved (and some of the yet unknown) talent in Aussie music, from some of the most respected (and some of the soon-to-be worshipped) labels in the country, these showcases will bring your already-faves into contact with your next great obsessions. Make room in your playlists now.

Wanna know more? Be patient – all will be revealed very soon. This wouldn’t be the music industry without a little intrigue. Look to your inboxes mid August for a huge announcement.

This will be Face the Music as it’s never been before: thinking locally, acting globally. Whether you’re a label honcho, a media hack, a misunderstood artist or just an enthusiastic punter, Face the Music is taking all the flavours of the industry and putting them in a doggy bag for you to take home.

Get your early bird tickets now so you don’t miss out. While you still have the chance, face the music and dance.
